Blaze: Official Trailer Released Online

Sundance Selects has released the official trailer for biopic of country musician Blaze Foley, directed by Ethan Hawke.


The official synopsis for the film is as follows:

Directed by Ethan Hawke, Blaze stars newcomer Ben Dickey as Blaze Foley, the unsung songwriting legend of the Texas outlaw music movement that spawned the likes of Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. The film weaves together three different periods of time, braiding re-imagined versions of Blaze’s past, present and future. The different strands explore his love affair with Sybil Rosen; his last, dark night on earth; and the impact of his songs and his death had on his fans, friends, and foes. The storyline terminates in a bittersweet ending that acknowledges Blaze’s profound highs and lows, as well as the impressions he made on the people who shared his journey.


The film stars Ben Dickey, Alia Shawkat, Sam Rockwell, Wyatt Russell, Steve Zahn, Sybil Rosen, Kris Kristofferson, Josh Hamilton, Richard Linklater, James Ourso, David Kallaway, Ritchie Montgomery and Charlie Sexton.


Blaze is scheduled for cinematic release on the 7th September 2018.
